October 9th, 2008, 02:01 PM
(kl)ubuntu package now available on kde-apps.org...


Can someone explain (give directions) on how to get this working? I would love to have it, but do not understand which files to download and then what to do!

Thanks so much in advance!!!!

A 404 error, can you update your link or give an app name please?

Edit: if it's what I think it is name: Amarok Full Screen then can't you just download the .deb package

Most Recent one (http://stud4.tuwien.ac.at/~e0426379/amarokFS/amarokfs-qt3_0.4.2-1_i386.deb)

and double click to install?

Is that deb package for this?

I am not home right now but will try that one later....Thanks so much!

Yeah, that's the one, if you click deb it takes you to an index page where you download the deb file.

This is what the script shows within Amarok:

Upon startup, the script will look for the "amarokFS" executable in your PATH, and if not found, will prompt you for its location. Once the script is running, you will have an "AmarokFS" menu entry in your playlist popup menu; now simply select "Run Amarok Full Screen" to activate AmarokFS.
If you have multiple displays, you can choose which screen to use by selecting the appropriate menu option from the list of choices. I'm unable to get it working within Amarok itself, but I'm a GNOME user so there's so cross-desktop issues to be dealt with. I was able to install the package nixie liked to which put an entry on my Sound & Video menu that let me start Amarok FS. I have to set up my playlist in Amarok itself, but the FS app does let you run with the playlist without having to show your desktop. To get out of FS mode just hit the Esc key.

I do recommend experimenting with different FS themes to find one you like best.
